Puccini, Nicola Luisotti: La Fanciulla Del West (2 DVD)
"I cannot think of a soprano who can sing any better this demanding role. What wins you over is Voigt's deep feeling for the character. The role of Johnson gives Giordani ample opportunities to luxuriate in tenorial top notes and unleash impassioned phrases. Gallo is a coolly menacing Jack Ranee. Thanks in large part to the stylish, nuanced and sensitive conducting of Nicola Luisotti, the score emerged as arguably Puccini's most subtly written and boldly modern music".

The Doors: From The Outside
This brand new documentary film tells the story of The Doors, not from the perspective of the surviving members - as has been told so many time before - but from the recollections, memories, stories and anecdotes of those who knew the group and its members best.
Our panel is headed by a woman who was as close to Jim Morrison as anyone ever was; his widow Patricia Kennealy-Morrison. Patricia has rarely spoken on film about her relationship with Jim, or about her own memories of The Doors. This is a once in a lifetime contribution from someone who knew just about everything that went on.
Next up is Billy James, the man who "discovered" Jim Morrison and an early incarnation of The Doors. Billy signed them to their first deal with Columbia Records, and gained the trust and respect of the entire group. Here he tells all about those very early days when The Doors were known only to a select few.
Richard Goldstein – ex-editor of Village Voice and close friend of the band is on hand too with his anecdote-heavy version of events, as is Mark Benno, the legendary blues musician whose searing guitar graced the L.A. Woman album.
The very finest Rock journalists and writers, and those who lived through and were affected by The Doors' music as it was being released also contribute to this most original documentary film. In this regard, we are joined by Robert Christgau, Johnny Rogan, Dave DiMartino, Ritchie Unterberger, Doug Sundling, and Jim Morrison’s biographer James Riordan.
The programme is further enhanced by the rarest footage of the band in existence, classic live and studio musical performances, seldom seen photographs, news clips, location shots and much more....
